Only local roofers can determine how much roof ventilation you need. Your attic space, the size of your home and the intake all need to be considered. This can make calculations long and tricky.
That’s why at Napolitano Roofing, we explain how and why you need these shorthand calculations.
Your attic is measured in square footage, the same unit to measure your roof, which also determines how much ventilation per square foot costs. Once you determine the total square footage, take the total attic square feet, and then halve it.
Once you determine half of the square footage, you get the number of square inches needed. This is for both your exhaust and your vents. The exhaust is where the hot air filters out. It is located at the tip of the rooftop, covered by specialized shingles. The vents are where air passes freely. If you don’t have vents, we can install them and perform other roofing and siding services.
The significance of this calculation is efficient ventilation; after all, too much ventilation is just as bad as too little. You need an effective ventilation system that suits your roof and home. However, you need the proper size for your vents and exhaust. This way, you can get a balanced air flow going. If you have too much hot or cool air, you risk spending more on cooling or heating. You also force your roof to contract and expand, slowly damaging it.
